Good, the Uni organises a bunch of different things for freshers and you get to know many people from all over the world. There's lots of different private student accommodations around town and RGU has their own accommodation as well. The Uni is very new with great study facilities and a lovely library. The course has a great mixture of academic and practical knowledge which is amazing for applying to jobs The city is great for students, especially because there's another Uni around along with several colleges

Accounting and Finance, Year 2
(5)·By Emily·Accounting· Oct 2018
I'm currently a 2nd year student at RGU and study accounting and finance. I find my course extremely good and have secured my Year 3 placement which is offered on the course. There are also a number of societies and clubs available to join, I've tried the mountaineering club so far in my first semester of Year 2 which I found great! There are also many opportunities to study abroad etc which is a great opportunity.
My course itself has been a challenge but there is always support available and not only the university but the student union is always on hand! The atmosphere is also much different from other universities and is very open plan and good for coming together to study.
Other, Year 2

My university experience last year was great although I am shy! I did struggle but eventually did settle in to a group of friends on my course. Unfortunately my flatmates and I didn't really gel very well but I wish them the best for the future! This year I've decided to be more outgoing and have joined the RGU dance team! Bit out of my comfort zone but I've met a few new friends there! My flatmates are great this year, we all really get on! Here's to a better year at uni and to hip hop dancing my way through exams in January!
Building, Year 4 Plus
(4.8)·By Connor H·Building / Construction· Oct 2018
My experience in Uni has been fantastic. I've made loads of new friends in which I can say I will be friends with for life. I have expanded my knowledge in my course, building surveying. I also feel so much more confident in myself and I am looking forward to seeing where the knowledge I have learned will take me in life.
Business and Management Studies, Year 3
(4.8)·By Holly D·Management· Oct 2018
I did a two plus two with aberdeen college and to start with there was very little support in the way of moving up to Year 3 at university.
Luckily RGU is a very open and helpful university that has meant I've made lots of new friends from many other countries and lecturers are usually more than happy to help when you need it.
Journalism, Year 1
(4.5)·By Vanya C·Journalism· Oct 2018
I just started studying at RGU, but so far everything is superb. The teachers are very professional and educated, but their behaviour towards students is still very friendly. The university building is an astonishing contemporary piece of art.
Nursing, Year 2
(4.5)·By Danielle R·Nursing· Oct 2018
Brilliant, stressful but rewarding knowing what I am working towards.
Medical Technology, Year 3
(4.5)·By Rebecca M·Medical Technology· Jul 2021
It was class had a really good time. A lot of activities available and was a great ice breaker for bonding with flatmates and coursemates. Woolmanhill was good for meeting people had real student environment. Had everything you could need. Great facilities. Library very good looking with lots of work spaces available. Gym at uni very good and a good price for students. Such a good and in depth course with such a good practical aspect. Lecturers teach you everything you could possibly need to know. Great city life with good clubs and bars dotted around the city. Good bus links to all around the city
Other Subjects Allied To Medicine, Year 2
(4.5)·By Guillaume C·Medicine· Oct 2018
Tutors have always been friendly and welcoming. The university has always put their maximum for students to enjoy their time.
The student accomodation are good and a fun way to meet people. The university is full of people from everywhere in The world which is also very good
The only bad thing is that the uni is far from the centre of aberdeen which means you always have to take the bus to make it there.
Sports / Sports Science, Graduate
(4.5)·By Aidan K·Sports· Jul 2021
It was a fun time as everyone was in the same boat. It was a really good time to meet people and join clubs/societies of your own interest. Accommodation at university was very central to town, I loved living so close to all my favourite shops and restaurants. It was nice in first year living with fellow students also studying at the university. Unfortunately there is no really student union at RGU however the sporting facilities are great with an excellent pool and climbing wall area. I would like to see a union at the university that offers students a place to gather and also socialise Lecturers were very enthusiastic and enjoyed teaching the subject. It is nice to know they are always there to help and are very approachable. I am from the country so moving into the city was a big step for me. I found the city life exciting with lots happening in the evenings, there was always something on for everyone. I really enjoyed living so close to the gym where I could be there within a couple of minutes walking as opposed to driving 20 minutes like I did before university.
Other, Year 2
(4.5)·By Kyra K·Other· Oct 2018
So far my University experience has been a positive one. My course which is Bachelor of Midwifery has been very enjoyable so far, the lecturers involved in my course have been very supportive and strive to ensure everyone in the class is working to the best of their ability. The University itself is a beautiful modern building and I enjoy walking from class to class. Although it is a small University, it is a great one and I look forward to completing my next two years at it.
